Playing the Game

My dad would be 99 this year so divided by 4 and rounded up gives me #25 which translates to my great great grandmother, Elizabeth Simpson. At least I have information on her which is more than I can say if I had hit #26 or #27 or #28.

Elizabeth Simpson was born 8 Dec 1815 in Scotland, the daughter of John and Jane (Wilson) Simpson

She (and her husband Adam Russell) came to NY aboard the American Congress (1855) and then moved to Chicago sometime before the 1860 census as they both appear on that census (Chicago, Cook Co., IL)

Elizabeth died in the home of her son John in South Bend, Pacific Co., WA. She is suppose to be buried in Lake Forest Cemetery in Lot 78 but I haven't found her yet.
